Elliott Wright's Marbella restaurant has burned down just weeks after his father died of Covid-19.

The former TOWIE took to Instagram to confirm the devastating loss of his restaurant, sharing a photo of the building after the blaze.

He posted on Instagram, 'So I will get this out there as no doubt this news will spread fast... unfortunately, it’s with regret that @olivias_la_cala had a fire in the early hours of this morning..."

Elliott, who is Mark Wright's cousin, continued, 'It’s too soon to say why.

'More importantly in life you get tested... it’s been a very testing couple of years... especially recently.. but if you know me, you know I will rise from this... I will rebuild it big and better than before... I will never be beaten.'

Mark opened up (opens in new tab) about the devastating loss of his uncle Eddie recently.

Aside from the fact that one of his restaurants have closed, Eliott has also been dealing with some other personal news, as he announced that his father Eddie had passed away after a long battle with Covid-19.

Paying tribute to his late father on Instagram, Elliott wrote, 'It is with heart-wrenching regret I have to post this post. My father George Wright passed away peacefully with his family by his side on March 2 after bravely fighting Covid for eight weeks.

'For those who knew my father, you know what a great man he was, always smiling, always humble, always happy.'
